Today’s Episode is called “In the Window” it is Episode 35!
I am so excited because today I have a Hanukkah song for you that I get to sing with my dear 7 year old nephew Sander, one of my favorite kids in the whole wide world. Now, some of you might be wondering if he is the same Sander who helped a giant in the Episode 20, “Sander and the Lost Giant’. Well, yes, in fact, he is. Only he might have just met that giant in my imagination… but Sander does have a fuzzy funny little dog named Birdie. That part is absolutely real!
Now, this is one of my favorite times of the year. Yes, it is so dark because it is almost the solstice, the longest darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, but that is why, have you noticed, so many different cultures and religions celebrate the light that we people can bring to each other. One of those celebrations is Hanukkah, a festival of lights that people of the Jewish religion observe. Each night they light one more candle on the menorah.

This song goes like this:
In the window, where you can see the glow of my menorah on newly fallen snow, I will light you one little candle on this the first night of Hanukkah.
And then we add a candle until there are eight.
Are you ready? Here we go….
“In the Window”
In the window where you can see the light of my menorah on newly fallen snow, I will send you one little candle on this the first night of Hanukkah.
I’d like to thank my brother James for singing with us too, did you hear him? James has a wonderful band called Great Willow that lots of adults like. Maybe your folks would like his beautiful song, “Many Things”.
Spring Sprang Sprong, I hoped you liked my song and, if you celebrate Hanukkah, I hope you enjoy it with your dearest ones.
Come back soon and I’ll have a fairy story for you for the solstice and a Merry Christmas song too.
